The mineral content of the Dead Sea is very different from that of ocean water. The salt concentration of the Dead Sea fluctuates around 31.5%. This is unusually high and results in a nominal density of 1.24 kg/l.

An unusual feature of the Dead Sea is its discharge of asphalt. From deep seeps, the Dead Sea constantly spits up small pebbles and blocks of the black substance.[24] Asphalt-coated figurines and bitumen-coated Neolithic skulls from archaeological sites have been found. Egyptian mummification processes used asphalt imported from the Dead Sea region.

Dead Sea mud pack therapy has been suggested to temporarily relieve pain in patients with osteoarthritis of the knees. According to researchers of the Ben Gurion University of the Negev, treatment with mineral-rich mud compresses can be used to augment conventional medical therapy.

Sunny and warm shore of the Dead Sea is the best place to visit for treatment and rest. The out-and-outer solt in the sea water, very clean atmosphere and the superior climate of the Dead Sea have perfect health effects.
By the way, the beauty Cleopatra, queen of Egypt, had a cottage with Spa at the seaside of the Salt Sea (now it is commonly called the Dead Sea). It is believed that this is the first ever Spa Dead Sea.
